Yong Yi Ling

Head of Talent & Operations, Teach For Malaysia


YONG YI LING is the Head of Talent & Operations in Teach For Malaysia, a non-profit organisation that focuses ending education inequity in Malaysia through various leadership and educational programmes and interventions. She started her career as an auditor, but it did not take long for her to decide that her passion was to contribute her efforts to and work with underserved communities.

Previously, as the Head of the Selection portfolio in the Talent Acquisition team, she was tasked to oversee the assessment and selection of passionate individuals with the right fit to join Teach For Malaysia’s 2-year Fellowship programme.

With 9 years of experience in the talent field, and as she leads the Talent and Operations team in Teach For Malaysia today, Yi Ling believes that it is the role of all leaders in the organisation to create a purposeful, empowering and compassionate culture to enable each individual to bring their best and whole self to work.
